, the man who served as secretary for bill clinton. robert reich. and grover norquist, president of americans for tax reform. we're coming right back. >>> welcome back. something that very possibly could come up tonight is governor romney floating the idea of capping tax deductions at $17,000. would that effectively be a tax increase? and would it work to bring down the deficit? with us now robert reich who served as labor secretary under bill clinton and grover nor qui quist. >> he's made that commitment as has paul ryan and certainly the vast majority of republicans in the house. which is a commitment not to raise overall taxes. romney's committed to cutting all tax rates at least 20%. ryan and the house republicans want to go to a top rate of 25% corporate and individual. romney's made it clear. any changes are in the context of keeping overall taxes from going up and making sure the middle class doesn't get hit request higher taxes. it's not a tax increase, he's made that clear. >> mr. secretary, a lot of discussion about whether or not the wealthy or the middle class familie
, not as a progressive, which, by the way, is what obama is, a progressive, just like hillary clinton, who admitted she was. host: let's not go too far off the rails here. i understand that the constitution, the check and balances that the constitution refers to is between the legislative, the judicial, and the executive branch, and doesn't really mention the establishment of a two-party system. caller: you need a two-party system. look what happened the first two years -- even though it took obama two years to get the healthcare through, they still had everything right there. unless you have a complete representative, you know, in there that represents everyone and just not one side, like all progressives or all republicans, you don't have those checks and balances, whether it's the legislative, judicial, presidency, whatever. you need -- the bottom line -- you know, there's one problem on this whole thing. obama is not a politician. i mean, he cannot negotiate. reagan was in there. he had a democrat in congress, and he was able to negotiate like several people. obama can't do that. he goes out there
immediately. barack obama. it happened with hillary clinton time and time again where hillary clinton, chris dodd, joe biden, outdebated barack obama in every single debate back in 2008. every single debate. chris dodd, joe biden, hillary clinton just ran circles around him. and people say, well, why can't he -- at some point you just have to say, because he doesn't have his -- i mean, a great of a grasp on the issues as the people he's debating. >> that's sobering but it's true. i still believe it's the professor. >> how can you be president of the united states, mark halperin, and, i mean, and not have these basic answers? >> well, it's more than i think the format than not having the answers. he spent a lot of the evening going after mitt romney for things that he thinks he can win the election on like taxes and medicare. it wasn't like he never responded to it. >> but isn't the format in washington is that you get in a room with someone and you go at it and you try and figure it out? >> that's what we're asking. has he been too isolated? listen, we talked to him. the guy is brilliant. he
reportedly clashed with demonstrators and fired gas to disperse it. in washington, hillary clinton said the iranian government only has itself to blame for its economic problems. >> i think the iranian government deserves responsibility for what is going on inside iran. and that is who should be held accountable. i think they have made their own government decisions, having nothing to do with the sanctions that have had an impact on the economic conditions inside the country, and of course, the sanctions have had an impact as well, but those could be remedied in short order if the iranian government were willing to work with the p5 plus 1 and the rest of the international committee and a sincere manner. >> clinton is that going for a full investigation for alleged security lapses that led to the killing of four americans at the was consulate in benghazi, libya last month. house republicans have set a hearing for next week following kent state department rebuffed pleas from u.s. officials in libya for more secured before the attack. on wednesday, hillary clinton about a perot pro. >> men
. he couldn't put the entire picture together. he kept going back to go back to lincoln and clinton. the fact is when clinton was president the economy was very different. you can't say the same policies that worked under clinton will work when we had over 8% unemployment for 43 months straight. that is where romney showed his strength. stuart: let me draw your attention to the stock market. in the last couple minutes we have seen the dow go straight up. we are now up 96 points getting close to 13-6 on the dow industrials. top of the hour we got the 5% drop in factory orders. that suggests a weakening economy. we got a 3.36% rate on 30 year fixed rate mortgages at an all-time low. maybe that suggests a lot of money printing by the fed and a weak economy. i don't have another explanation why the dow is up 95 except that. lousy factory orders means ben bernanke will print bigger. >> no bad news out of europe. everyone is focused on europe and not what is going on in the economy domestically. a lot of schizophrenic information. great manufacturing numbers early in the weekend bad numbe
going, i can't believe what i'm seeing? bill clinton's thinking, okay, i saved his convention. do i have to -- i mean, you know bill clinton, along with every other democrat, was pulling his hair out last night. >> oh, yeah. >> so many softballs lobbed barack obama's way that he just didn't take a swing at. >> i think that when you look at those debates four years ago, all obama had to do was to show up and to be calm. they were -- we were in the midst of an economic panic. and he showed, you know, a very calm and steady demeanor which was reassuring. but he's never actually had to make a case in a debate. and he couldn't make a case last night. he couldn't even make a case for his own stimulus program. it was astonishing. >> this was each candidate's best and worst on display because the president -- i think a lot of people agree -- debates aren't his strong point and the stylistic part of it is difficult. with mitt romney, even during the primary, even though the competition was clownlike, he always stepped up and was aggressive and was impressive. >> that's right. this shouldn't come
ohio, undecided. what did you think of the debate and why are you undecided? caller: bill clinton and i voted for george bush then i voted for obama. last night romney looked like a leader. i'm not for big government. i was excited with the national health-care plan until i started talking to some friends and relatives of mine that work in the health-care industry that were expressing concern. i have an aunt that works in the health-care industry and working with the disabled. she says it will be a disaster. she knows people personally and companies that will lose the medicare to the national health care system. they will not be able to accept medicare. that ownsme on goauncles some businesses. i don't consider them wealthy. they will be hit hard through this, if obama gets his tax increases through. host: are you leaning towards mitt romney at this point? caller: it would be hard to persuade me. that rahm it appears to be a leader. mitt romney has worked across the lines -- mitt romney appears to be a leader. i believe he will look down and will cut you off and that is what he has done
. 67illion people tuned in. it was the most watched debate since 1992, take you back, that was clinton. clinton. the first president bush, and ross perot. remember, ross perot. that was -- that was quite an election. >> lots of fodder for "saturday night live." >> dana carvey, yeah. >> democratic operatives were hoping no one was watching the debate. which they knew wasn't the case. but -- >> people thought maybe 40 million, 50 million. 67 million no one expected the number. so that really compounds how bad it was. the president had a bad night that many people watching. again, that's momentum for romney to ride. he is. >> doesn't compare to the ratings for this show. nowhere near. nowhere near. >> 67 million. child's play for the overnight. please. >>> well, a disagreement over politics got so heated that police say a south florida man slapped his own wife. 74-year-old jay harley broke down in tears as he appeared before a broward county judge. harley says he loves his wife but they got into an argument over dinner about the candidates. he has been ordered to stay away from her until
and hillary clinton, every third night people said he has to be more aggressive, he has to come after her. it was the same kind of critique of his performance. and it did get more pointed over time, but b, the number one value that the obama team sees as their candidates' chief virtue is his personal likability and they will do nothing to risk that. so this was an intentional strategy -- >> do you think obama gained people tonight? >> i don't know. >> this is about winning. this is a huge election. you can't go out there and say. they want the jugular on this guy. >> i know. but they have -- all i'm saying. i'm channelling them for a moment. i tend to agree more with you. but they have said from the beginning we know the liberals want the jugular but we will not give it to to you. the reason people like this man is because he's not the kind of person who ever goes to the jugular. >> so he left the impression tonight that he's really going to fight when it comes to social security? >> i didn't think so. >> i do think one of the remarkable things about tonight is the fact that the president
and recommendations to secretary clinton within 60 days of its first meeting, unless the chair determines a need for additional time. in simple terms, no time limit. do not expect anything before the election. now more than three weeks after the attack, the consulate in benghazi is still not secure. according to a "washington post" reporter on the ground in benghazi, sensitive documents, including the personnel files and records outlining efforts to rounds up loose weapons in libya can be found in plain sight. a republican on the house government oversight committee is criticizing the administration's state of of reliance on the f.b.i. investigation given agents are not in benghazi. >> the area is too dangerous for the f.b.i., but it wasn't dangerous enough for this administration to increase security. i'd like to ask that and i plan on doing it next week. >> fox news has confirmed the state department has yet to provide documents, including e-mails and other communications about security to republican senators corker, isakson, and the house intelligence committee. guys, back to you. >> steve: t
earlier who said the shelling has now stopped. secretary of state hillary clinton has called this a very, very dangerous situation. the fear is that it could escalate into a military conflict between turkey and syria. that would be massively destabilizing for the middle east and could even draw in the u.s. turkey is a nato ally. however this morning we've also heard of the senior adviser to the turkish prime minister, who seemed to quell those fears saying turkey has no intention of going to war with syria but that turkey is capable of defending its borders and will retaliate when necessary. >> holly williams, thank you so much. clarissa ward is with us now, reporting on the uprising in syria for more than a year. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and norah. >> good to have you here. >> thank you. >> what is the reaction on the part of the people supporting the rebellion against the government to the fact that they have not been getting the kind of assistance they hoped for or expected? >> i think there's a sense now not just of disappointment, but actually of real bitterness. they

had when bill clinton was president, when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus, and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. and the reason this is important is because by doing that we can not only reduce the deficit, we can not only encourage job growth through small businesses but we're also able to make the investments that are necessary in education or in energy. and we do have a difference, though, when it comes to definitions of small business. now, under my plan 97% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says, well, those top 3%, they're the job creators, they'd be burdened. but under governor romney's definition there are a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small businesses. donald trum subpoena a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as small anything. but that's how you define small businesses if you're getting business income. and that kind of approach i believe will not grow our economy because the only way to pay for it without either burdening the middle cla

, but it was bill clinton who cornered the candidate with just one word, arithmetic, arguing that his plan just doesn't add up. but if you dare call him out on it, watch out. >> so i'm not going to send money to amtrak. i'm not going to send money to pbs. not going to send money to the national center -- or the national endowment for humanities and arts. >> that doesn't add up to much, governor. >> i'm happy to keep going, julie, okay? >> as for middle class americans who believe that will translate into big tax cuts, well, mr. romney has some bad news for you. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions, but by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money so they can hire more people. >> jared bernstein is an msnbc contributor and former chief economic policy to the vice president. it's great to have you in person, jared. can you explain something to me because this sounds to me like a game of smoke and mirrors. on the one hand he says he's going to reduce everyone's taxes by 20%. >> righ
the american people the truth. and then proceed to walk through as clinton would have done the mathematics to prove it. i don't think romney would have been smart enough to figure out how to get out of that hit, but obama ignored that opportunity and i think that's a mistake. joan, you're correct. he will everywhere he goes, he will save the day and correct what he didn't do last night, but 58 million people will not be able to be contacted in time for him to make that correction. >> well, joan, last night romney made another surprising state on his health care plan this time. let's take a look at the latest variation on a theme which is i'm not as bad as i am. let's watch it. >> let's get the governor explain what you would do it obama care is repealed. how would you replace it? >> actually, it's a lengthy description but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. number two, young people are able to stay on their family plan. >> well, there's a lie. keep it simple. i reserve my right to use it once in a wile. his own guy came out and said it's not in there. talking po
official in the clinton administration. he now teaches at lehigh university. and hisham melhem, washington bureau chief of al-arabiya news. gentlemen, good to have you both with us. so let me start with you, henri barkey, we heard in that report an accident, a stray shell. how did events come to this? >> well, there's a lot of fighting on the border. there's been shelling before. this is not the first time that shells fell on the turkish side. in fact, last week the turks sent a protest to the syrians because there was a whole series of shells that fell on to farm so if this had happened differently yesterday, in other words, if the shells had fallen on farmland and not killed five people we wouldn't be discussing this tonight and there would not be a security council resolution. so it's a little bit happenstance to some extent. >> warner: but the tension between the two countries has been building? >> the tension has been building. the turks are supporting the free syrian army. they're allowing the free syrian army a base to operate against syria. the turkish government has taken a very s

. but second -- >> it reminded me of hillary clinton four years ago. i had forgotten that i thought hillary clinton won in all those debates. i picked up a lot of the same mannerisms and that was before he was in the office. and could say i'm not used to -- >> he apparently kicked john kerry's butt in all the preparation. well, i've got a plan-apparently he just wasted him. they had high expectations because he kicked john kerry's -- the other thing, john, i read a couple places that it was a drag preparing for this. the next between weeks are going to be -- when's the next debate? >> vice presidential debate is next thursday. and two weeks from now the presidential. >> next two weeks will be a complete drag. >> but one other point about the substance. because we still don't know how swing voters, the people who are still -- how they view the two side by side. it is possible in a country as polarized as ours to really get your side going and think you really kicked the other guy's behind and find that it doesn't move the needle all that much. and we have to see that. but the other thing was
with president clinton. it's a balanced approach. and mitt romney is still waving around the magic wand, that if you cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires, that grows jobs rather than deficits. and we know that's not true. so he did have an elevated level of debate. and fortunately, we have a few more rounds. >> well, i'll tell you, i'll use the word skated and danced and tap danced, but those are not the adjectives that people who watched the debate, frankly, on both sides of the aisle, that were using. they felt that governor romney was aggressive, assertive, and came to play. sort of the opposite for president obama. are you worried that people who did not see the debate, which will be the majority, maybe the majority of the people who will now be voters going to the polls, that this will affect them as well? that, you know, this means a big change in poll numbers, which have of late been favoring the president? >> i don't believe that you'll see a fundamental change in the dynamics of this race. and i believe the big question that still needs to be answered is governor romney'
